Texans Love Beef Chili

By Martha Crump | marthacrump@comcell.net,

Ask any red-blooded, dyed in the wool Texan what constitutes good “cool weather food” and the top five answers will always include chili. Do not, I repeat, do not enter into any debate regarding whether or not beans should be found in real chili.

You will get as many different points of view as there are recipes out there as to what constitutes perfect chili, and honestly, as long as those recipes do not include fake meat or ground turkey, I am of the opinion you should cook it however you personally like it. This is Texas of course, and you never know what weather will do through the fall.

I remember seasons where we were still hot up until Christmas, and others where I observed record snowfalls in October. I can guarantee that when the colder temperatures do arrive, chili will be on the menu at our house, accompanied by a steaming hot cast iron skillet of homemade cornbread. It is truly a Texas thing, y’all!

Many of you know I’m a big fan of young and up and coming artists. With North Texas being a mecca for producing young artists with many making their way to the big leagues, I’m pleasantly reminded that one young artist I’ve kept my eye on for several years is beginning to make that same trek.

Cameron Hobbs is from Denton, Texas. He began his musical journey at an early age. That can happen when you grow up in a musical family. He began work and his self-titled CD in 2017. Since then, his song writing and musical skills have grown. But one thing that hasn’t changed is his persistence and determination to see his career flourish.
